Background:

The 2068 ‘Law of Awareness’ granted all non human creations the same right as humans themselves, and changed the way the working world existed. The B5100 series (pre 2068) were primarily employed to work on governmental architectural projects as an electrical maintenance engineers.

The work was sometimes dangerous and often involved working around Class Q Construction Platforms, which were never known to be very caring about their movements, and this shows in the outer modular ‘Toughskin®’ of this B5100.

Many B5100 bots were happy to keep any damage to their working kit as a sign of what a tough series they really are.

Now available at the Tesselate Shop, standing at 6″ tall and VERY limited with an edition size of one!

AJZ Design’s Busted Cap Resin Minifigs

Busted Cap collage3

Busted Cap resin mini figures are hand crafted and designed by artist Andres Zamora and are available now at ajzdesign.com/bustedcap.

Representing a fusion of Urban Art/fashion on a 2.25 inch toy these mini figures sport a baseball cap inspired head and sneakers.  Future series will be developed in different colors and sizes but this initial series run is created as the original white version.  Featuring detachable legs, and a soft white texture this initial run of Busted Caps are limited edition to 100 pieces.  Formed in a solid white resin these figures can be customized and added to any collection.

I love the form of this figure, it reminds me of Vaughn Bode’s Cheech Wizard character.  It has great potential for customization due to it’s unimposing shape and size which would make it a great platform to build upon.

MonsterPants’ New Sea-Borgs figures

Making their debut at New York Comic Con are six new Sea-Borg figures from MonsterPants. The first three will be:

  • SB-111 SEA-BORG QUEEN – Ready in green to defend her realm with her Diamond Mace!
  • SB-112 SEA-BORG SIREN – The purple mistress of persuasion, she wields a Pearl Scepter!
  • SB-113 SEA-BORG NIX – Vibrant yellow warrior, comes armed with her Bubble Gun!

All are handmade and packaged by filmmaker James Felix McKenney and can be purchased for $25 each at the MonsterPants booth #3116 at New York Comic Con or at the MonsterPants online store after the convention.

Once the sole inhabitants of a planet covered entirely in water, the beings that would become known as the Sea-Borgs were an advanced and peaceful race. Then one day an army of Invaders attacked their world, stripping it of its valuable natural resources and nearly wiping out the worlds’ undersea civilizations. The survivors from the various kingdoms banded together, rebuilding their ruined bodies with cybernetic weaponry and armor in order to combat the alien attackers who continue to exploit and pollute their world.
